Dear Galitzianers:

A reminder that Gesher Galicia is holding our annual spring program
this Sunday, May 17, at 11:00AM at the Center for Jewish History in New
York City. It is open to the public and reservations are not required.

"Galician Archival Records Project Updates" and
"'Galician Portraits": The Story of Jews, Gentiles, and Emperors"

Speakers: Pamela Weisberger & Andrew Zalewski

Sunday, May 17
Center for Jewish History (Auditorium)
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY 10011

11:00AM - 1:00PM: Learn about the Galician Archival Records Project,
the Cadastral Map Room and the latest discoveries made in the Lviv
Historical Archives, followed by a talk on the book "Galician Portraits:
In Search of Jewish Roots."

1:00PM - 2:00PM: Join us at an informal, post-program brown bag lunch
& Galitzianer chat in the mezzanine chapel at the Center for Jewish
History. No food is sold at the Center, so you must bring your own.

Directions to the CJH are here: http://www.cjh.org/p/9

Please note: although we had planned to offer a talk by Valerie
Schatzker on her book, "Jewish Oil Magnates of Galicia," she cannot
join us due to the delay in publication. We plan to have her speak at
next year's program. We will videotape this talk and it will be available
for members on our website this summer.

Gesher Galicia's new publication: "Krakow: A Guide to Jewish Genealogy"
will be available for donation at this meeting ($20 per copy).

(You are invited to stay for the JGSNY program in the afternoon, "Holly
Golightly Was a Nice Jewish Girl: Our Ancestors Reinvented" at 2:00PM.
